Outlook sending winmail.dat file instead of .pdf

We are trying to send an invoice from quickbooks through Outlook 2007, and some of the people have emailed me back saying that they are getting the attachment as a winmail.dat file instead of the usual pdf. This is not happening to everyone i send this to though, I have tried the solution of following these steps off microsoft's support site and nothing has helped

 Tools > Options > Mail Format tab > Internet Format. The default is to
> convert to HTML

This option is within outlook. So I'm trying to find a different solution to send my .pdf files through outlook.
